Left-handed actors and actresses?

Post by takenoko » Mon Jul 04, 2016 4:26 pm

http://wiki.tvnihon.com/wiki/Category:Left-handed

Hey, I'm making a list of Japanese actors and actresses who are left-handed. So far I've got:

Hara Mikie (Cutie Honey)
Matsuzaka Tori (ShinkenRed)
Morita Suzuka (Shinken Yellow)
Sakurada Dori (New Den-O)
Yoshii Rei (Rinna from Drive)

Does anyone know any other ones?

Ryoma Takeuchi (Kamen Rider Drive) and Ai Moritaka (ToQ 5gou) are both left-handed. I also believe that the actress that played child ToQ 5gou was as well.

Really? The child actress too? Dang

Edit: Okay, was able to confirm all three entries. Amazing trivia knowledge!

Edit edit: Are there any left-handed fictional characters in toku or anime worth adding to my list?

Well, I know in Takeru's case he was played right handed (At least according to the wiki). I guess that's the case with Kotoha too.

Apparently Tomari Shinnosuke is left-handed, but I can't for the life of me remember any evidence of that, besides knowing that his actor is.

Arai Yuusuke (was recently in Garo)
Hamada Haruki Tsurugi Hiryuu (But ChangeDragon was right-handed)
IZAM
Kamen Rider Sigurd
Kataoka Tsurutaro Honganji Jun
Kojima Yoshio recently in garo
Kotobuki Minako Naria's voice
Oguri Shun was in Densha Otoko and many other shows
Okamoto Jirou suit actor
Sakurada Dori New Den-O
Shimizu Rara Young Kagura
Shinkawa YuaPhantom Thief Pink Buster
Tanaka Youji was in Garo
Tsuda Kanji Editor in Chief for Ryuki and many other shows
Warabino Tomoya Heart Roidmude
Yoshii Rei Rinna
Yoshiki Risa Sakurada Rika and alt world Pink Buster

So yeah, if you're left-handed, Drive was the show to be on.

I have a weird knack for noticing left-handed people in shows. I want to say that in the second episode of Kamen Rider Drive, Tomari Shinnosuke is writing on the crime board with his left hand (if not that episode then it's at least in episode 3 or 4)

Can I ask how you're finding all these out? Are you just watching very closely in the show or do actors tend to talk about it?
Seen:
Sentai: Zyuranger-Gingaman, Abaranger onwards.
Kamen Rider: All the Heisei series.
Precure: DokiDoki-Go Pri and the first few episodes of Mahoutsukai and Futari.

Currently watching: Kyukyu Sentai GoGoV.

For me, I just inputted left-handed in the Japanese wiki and clicked on any link that was purple already. Crazy, but that's what you do sometimes.

Might as well make this my 1st post since I'm a lefty too.

Hirofumi Fukuzawa (suit actor) is a lefty. I'm pretty sure he is due to his stint as Gokai Red in the Flying Ghost Ship movie. The Gokaigers play baseball against Baseball Mask and Gokai Red as Akaranger throws a pitch with his left hand. Noticed it back then, pretty cool. Haven't really noticed his suit acting as being left-handed in any other series, but w/e.

Also if it counts, Brenna Meija (Dino Charge Red) is a lefty. We've seen him write in his journal a good number of times.

Hi Taiko, nice to meet you. I can't confirm Fukuzawa as being left-handed. But I'll keep an eye out.

I'm right-handed, but left-handed people fascinate me.

I'm not sure of this, but maybe Kickhopper is left handed, at least as far as i remember from climax fourze game, the leg thing is on his left leg, while the arm thing on punch is on the right side.

Added Fukuhara Haruka, another Toqger left-hander.

Couldn't find any evidence for Tokuyama Hidenori being left-handed.
